Every Girl Challenge

A new year calls for a new "every girl" challenge! Thanks to all that participated in our Every Girl in a Tent challenge. It was a giant success!

Beginning January 1, any Girl Scout that spends the night on Camp Wah-Shah-She's property will be eligible to receive a free, limited-time patch. Simply tell us about your experience to receive your patch. The challenge will end December 31, 2020.

Why It's Important

From the backyard to the backcountry, Girl Scouts has a long and storied history of getting every girl outdoors. In fact, many Girl Scouts tell us summer camp and camping trips are one of the best things about their Girl Scout experience.

It’s true: connecting with the great outdoors in a girl-led setting is a big benefit of belonging to Girl Scouts.

Camp Wah-Shah-She was purchased in June, 1961. The camp site was at one time Osage Indian land. Wah-Shah-She means "Osage" in the tribal tongue and it was agreed that key locations on site would be named with Osage names and the area(s) have the blessing of the chief. The first day camp was held that summer in the pasture. One Brownie stretched out her arms and exclaimed, “Just think, this is mine, all mine!”  

Spend time together as a troop exploring the great outdoors for an overnight or weekend!  Cradled among woods and hills on 524 acres of land in Osage County, it is a perfect setting for adventure and environmental studies.

Taking a troop?  Make sure you've had  Troop Camper Training  and any other  outdoor trainings  necessary. Make sure you've submitted form  #585F  at least 4 weeks prior.
